    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Holly, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Holly, MI
    Interview Details

    One Interviewer was completely unprepared and distracted. I got the distinct impression I was imposing. Another Interviewer was arrogant and smug. This interview had a very insincere tone. I have never experienced anything like this in my professional career. Something is very wrong with this company. I ran away! I subsequently read some extremely bad reviews on this site from many past and current employees.

    IT Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Laird Technologies in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by their HR manager from Montana. They were really friendly and quick with communication. A phone interview was scheduled. The interview went well. There weren't many questions it was mostly explaining the limitations of the job. "We don't have an office" "The place is a mess" "We don't have any standards" To me it sounded perfect I was really excited about the travel and the opportunity. " Well you are perfect for the position etc. I am going to call HR and get the last two interviews scheduled they are merely a formality, I just want to make sure you will gel with the other guy who does applications and the consultant who is currently doing the job but doesn't want to take the job because his mom is sick (Huh?) " So we hang up and I am contacted by HR back in Montana via email. Can you fill out this application. So I give up all the information that an identity thief would need to completely assume my life and buy a yacht on credit. I diligently write it out and then scan it and send it via PDF to the HR department in Montana yet again. I get an almost instant "Thanks" email back. I am thinking OK cool. I will hear something. A week passes.

    Nothing. No email rejection no call no nothing. no follow up interviews. I send Montana HR an email. No reply.

    I send an email to a friend I know in the company who knows the hiring person. "I let him know. If there is any interest. I am sure he will contact you in a week."

    Wait what?

    Well it has been 3 weeks. So, I figured I would throw my glassdoor interview experience in here. There is a lot of bitter reviews of the company from the 2007 era but you can tell that is from people that were laid off in that year. There really isn't that many reviews so I figured I would throw my experience on here both as a warning and for comedic value.

    Bad HR practice in my book but apparently this is 2012 and normal corporate behavior. I'm sorry that I have an expectation that if you interview someone you at least send them a "Thanks but no thanks email"

    Interview Questions
    • There really were no difficult questions I have the qualifications for this job and it sounded easy. There were the how would you do this technology and that. Do you know what the company does. etc. Nothing weird or abnormal. Very laid back. Too laid back really.   Answer Question
